Why ZIANA Gel?

If you have acne, getting clearer skin isn't always easy. It may be time you thought about trying a prescription acne medicine. Your dermatologist can determine the severity of your acne and help you find the right acne treatment option for you.

ZIANA Gel is a treatment for mild, moderate, and severe acne that combines an antibiotic (clindamycin) with a retinoid (tretinoin). ZIANA Gel offers these demonstrated acne fighters in one easy-to-use gel. ZIANA was formulated with tolerability in mind. Its non-sticky formula spreads easily and contains no alcohol.1 And with a large 60-gram tube, convenient once-a-day dosing, and our Medicis MediSAVE Program, ZIANA can be an economical choice as well.

Whether you're a teen acne patient or adult acne patient, effective treatment depends on the type of acne you have and how severe it is, which a dermatologist can help determine (see About Acne).2 Talk to your dermatologist about your acne and ask if ZIANA Gel is the right acne treatment for you.
